Shame on Selinger for offending those who served

Premier Greg Selinger says opting out of Remembrance Day is a matter of religious freedoms.

Shame on you, premier, your passing grade of 50 per cent that Manitobans approved of you has plummeted by your remarks.

It is our duty, we have an obligation, to respect and honour those who served — and those who still serve — for their sacrifices.

And all that so you could make such an offensive statement.

Remembrance Day services and religious freedoms are two very different dedications.

A veteran,

John Fefchak
